Ravenswing Ottawa is a volunteer-run, self-sustaining grassroots collective that supports and promotes arts, music and community in Centretown Ottawa.
Ravenswing Ottawa’s key annual event is the Ravenswing Arts & Music Fair, which is held the fourth Sunday of May and features local artisans, live music and free skill-sharing workshops. The event is partnered with the Clothesline Project, a public art exhibit run by Ottawa’s Women’s Event Network that speaks out against violence directed towards women and children.
Throughout the year, Ravenswing Ottawa holds fundraisers to cover operating costs of the Fair. The fundraisers are organized to include celebrations of art, music and community through activities like craft workshops, games and live performances.
The 2015 Ravenswing Arts & Music Fair will be held on Sunday, May 24 at Minto Park.
